Description
Surveying the rich musical traditions of Biak Island, northwest of New Guinea, this anthology is focused primarily on the culture's wor ("songs"), freeform communal choruses backed by percussion. Also included here are two sublime church songs from this predominantly Christian island, sung by a cappella women's choirs, and a pair of equally profound hymns for festivals. A joyful dance number for vocals and string band rounds out this engaging collection. Part of a "monumental and enjoyable series" (New York Times), this disc documents music from the Indonesian archipelago, introducing dozens of beautiful and varied musical styles from throughout this complex island nation. As usual with Smithsonian Folkways, the quality of the field recordings is excellent, and the enclosed booklet includes extensive commentary, placing the performances in their regional and national contexts.
